Gasoline doesn't go bad. You'll probably hear it has a shelf
life of about three years, but it can for ten without any problems. I
can't imagine you'd suddenly have problems from the gas after running
your car regularly. You should check for rust in the gas tank and
clogging of the injectors, since that's where fuel problems are most
likely to occur.
